Fairy tales get a naughty surprise in this book. That's what I like about it. It takes traditional fairy tales like the frog prince and adds a spin to it with a naughty fairy who steals the princess before the prince can kiss her and locks her away in a tower.
A very cute story for kids of any age.
What I like about this book is that it's for girls who don't want to be princesses. This is a book for girls who like to wear sneakers and get dirty in the mud. This one is for those tomboys out there. I was a tomboy growing up and I hated wearing dresses. Even now, I'm a sneakers/jeans girl and I found myself at 32 relating to this character.
What I also like are the sketches. They are rough and ragid and not clean cut because the last thing this character is is clean cut. I think many girls out there will be able to relate to this story.
